Installing AddOn to a Local QuantumATK Installation

Local access users are those that have installed QuantumATK (locally) on their systems. We distinguish the following cases:

A. Install official addons for each QuantumATK version. In this case just follow these steps (assuming you have internet connection):

  • Step 1: Open VNL and click the “Help” button on the toolbar.
  • Step 2: Choose “AddOn Manager” - a window pops up (see above).
  • Step 3: Choose the addon you want (directly or using the search box).
  • Step 4: Restart VNL to activate the new add-on.

B. Ready to install zip file. In this case we assume that you have already the zip folder of the addon (downloaded from our website or elsewhere) somewhere on your system and would like to istall it (no internet connection is required). Then:

  • Step 1: Open VNL and click the “Help” button on the toolbar.
  • Step 2: Choose “AddOn Manager” - a window pops up.
  • Step 3: Click the button “Install zip/folder”.
  • Step 4: Navigate to the downloaded zip file and install it.
  • Step 5: Restart VNL to activate the new add-on.
